Welcome to the Open Source Android Forensics Wiki!

About the Project

Our goal with the Open Source Android Forensics project was to create a unified framework for Android Forensics, focusing primarily on malware within Android applications. Our approach to tackling this emerging field was three fold. First, the creation of an entirely open source compilation of forensics and malware analytics software in the form of our OSAF Toolkit. Second, our focus was to create a standardized process for using the Toolkit and a set of best practices for analyzing Android applications. Lastly, in order to bring our knowledge and findings to the community, we have created the OSAF Community website. This site will not only host our toolkit and documentation, but will provide a platform for the interested users to gather and collaborate on this fast paced, emerging field in mobile malware forensics.
